1. Tepee by the woods

This is the pinnacle of eco-friendly tourism. This teepee is comfortable and cozy. Think of it as an upscale type of camping. There is a hammock out back and a large mattress inside of the teepee. The wood stove will keep you warm, and you can even cook up some eggs on it. There are two beds- but in summer, you can get a large king size bed instead. This Airbnb is surrounded by beautiful nature, wildlife, and huge oak trees.
